Salon de la Societe raffinee second edition Fred lo Cascio
ILike some of you might know I had been not only looking forward to this event since January but also preparing for it since January. So I am extremely happy to finally show you the end result!
Overall I am really happy with the end result although there is a fitting issue with the bodice I would like to correct.
All my inspiration gowns where off-shoulder evening gowns and I made mine so that it would lay on my shoulder. I really hate off-shoulder dresses and I need the bodice to work for a day time event coming up soon. I guess I didn't alter the pattern pieces enough to really make it work.
I don't have enough time until the next event to take the bodice apart and make the changes. So for I will focus on making a chemisette to fill in the neckline and a pair of sleeves appropriate for daytime. Maybe after I finish that and there is enough time left I'll make a red velvet bolero jacket and wear the skirt with a white lace blouse and jacket instead.
